Can't change Lexmark Z42 ink cartridge

My Lexmark Z42 printer is usually easy to change the ink cartridges. I just open the lid all the way and the carriage goes to the right place. This time, the carriage doesn't move. The power light is on, and the paper light is off. I have turned off the machine and turned it back on again. Any ideas?

You can unplug the printer from the power source. With the printer off, open the cover where the cartridge carrier is. Hold the solid white tape found in the middle inside the printer. Slowly drag the cartridge carrier to the center. Replace the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug printer back to the power source. Hope this helps.

Lexmark X1150 - how do I change ink cartridge


Make sure the printer is on. Lift the scanner unit to access the cartridge area. The cartridge carrier will automatically move to the center at the loading position. Squeeze the tabs on the cartridge lids, and then lift the lids. Remove the used cartridges. (refer to sample image below. printer shown may not look like your printer, however, the steps are the same.)
printtech_19.jpg

Insert new cartridges. Color cartridge should be in the left carrier and the black in the right carrier. Snap the lid closed. Lift the scanner unit and push the scanner support back while lowering the scanner unit until it is completely closed.
Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't position automatically to the middle even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip and gently slide the carrier to the middle of the printer. Load the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug the printer back to power source.
Thanks.

How do I change the ink cartridge on my lexamark x4650


Hi there.
You open the lid on the front/top of the printer.
Then the printer will set up the print head with the cartridges in the middle. There are white plastic clips on front of each cartridge, pull them gently towards you and the cartridge moves slightly up or you will have to pull it up. To put the new one is you must first take all the wrapping off the cartridge and twist the orange lid off the bottom of the cartridge. Make sure you put the right one in the right place. Push them gently down until you hear a "click" close the lid on the printer and carry on printing.

Changing ink for X1290


The printer needs to be on in order to change the cartridges. When you open the lid the cartridges should move into view.

Ink Cartridge


Make sure the power is on when you open the lid. The cartridges should move into the center so you can get to them. If they don't, close the lid, remove the power supply and reinsert it. Turn the printer back on and try again.
